Dark Souls 2 producer Takeshi Miyazoe has said that the studio does not expect From Software's upcoming RPG to receive any post-release DLC.

“For Dark Souls 2, we don’t even expect any additional downloadable content because we want to deliver a full game, the full experience, to fans who purchase the package from day one," said Miyazoe in an interview with Edge.

From Software released the Artorias of the Abyss DLC for the original Dark Souls, which added new weapons, enemies, locations, bosses, and a competitive PvP mode to the game.

"We did do additional content for Dark Souls," continued Miyazoe, "but generally downloadable content for Dark Souls 2 is not really being considered. Buy the package and you’ll get the full experience, and you’ll have as much fun as anybody else."

Miyazoe also ruled out the idea of microtransactions and free-to-play elements. "Spending a couple dollars on certain items does not help the experience. So no free-to-play yet!”

Dark Souls 2 will be released on March 11, 2014 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The PC version will follow at a later date.
